As part of some upcoming CollectionSpace work relating to focus issues 
involving the autocomplete widget, I was evaluating the status of the 
"jQuery UI delegate plugin" as part of our distribution. I was about to 
suggest that it be folded in, when I found that we had it already. 
Michelle then asked whether this was the same as the new "delegate" 
function supplied as part of the latest jQuery 1.4.2 API


It appears it is not precisely the same, but by my reading, the same 
functionality that was in the plugin overall has now been provided as 
part of the core framework, down to the "specially named" new events 
"focusin" and "focusout". I have raised


initially as a blocker for the coming release since I think it is an 
important goal to absolutely minimise the total download size of our 
framework for clients where we can, but clearly we should punt it if our 
other workload doesn't leave time to check it out.

It was sounding like there are some issues surrounding the current work 
on InlineEdit that were reported today involving multiple inlineEdit 
widgets being active at the same time that might benefit from the 
functionality here.
